One of my earlier attempts
by TommyV  14 Dec 2018
Ben Dash was one of my earlier attempts at hill bagging, back in the days when I had no gps and didn't believe I needed a map. I went through some bog that people had bagged turf on before I found a road that led to the mast mentioned by peter1. As I had no map or gps, I never found the elusive trig point but I figured I was close enough to tick this one off the list. It's not a hill that you would not likely revisit.
